Functions in AutoCAD

To make work with CAD drawings easy, users get access to the M-Files functions directly in Autodesk AutoCAD. You can access the functions from the File menu or the M-Files menu.

M-Files functions in AutoCAD:

  • Open from M-Files
  • Save to M-Files
  • Check Out
  • Check In
  • Undo Checkout

These functions are not supported in AutoCAD LT. The supported AutoCAD versions are specified in the M-Files Lifecycle Policy.

For more information about these functions, see Functions in Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint.


See Properties.

Insert Field

With the Insert Field option, you can add M-Files metadata to drawings and AutoCAD fields. In AutoCAD, you can find the M-Files metadata fields in the M-Files field category in the Field selection dialog. For more information, see Add M-Files Property.
